Flight camp gives kids introduction to aviation.


Published:

Participants in a four-day flight camp at Brooksville-Tampa Regional Airport last week got a hands-on introduction to the world of aviation.

Organized by Chip Laskey through American Aviation, the camp taught participants between 11 and 18 about safety, team work, leadership skills and the fundamentals of building a solid foundation that leads to safe and successful flying.

Participants also explored aircraft maintenance, radio and GPS systems, and receive basic introductions into aerodynamics and meteorology, flight planning and navigation.

The summer fight camp was the first of many Laskey hopes to hold for middle and high school children.
